In this podcast, Professor Joachim Krueger asks, “how can we not care about happiness.” Must happiness, like luck, always be left to chance? Krueger shares how he approaches this question from both a psychological and philosophical perspective. He concludes that happiness is an emotional state that emanates from effort, and a zest for life. He also discusses how he will explore in his Brown Executive Master class the potential of happiness to serve as a tool to strengthen individual leadership, workplace culture and corporate profitability.
